How to make Peanut Butter & Jam Pinwheel Cookies
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Seedless raspberry jam
- Unsalted butter
- Smooth peanut butter
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Vanilla extract
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking powder
To make these cookies, simply mix together the raspberry jam and cornflour until smooth. Set aside for later.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter, peanut butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and beat until combined. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt, and mix until a thick dough forms.
You may want to use your hands to bring the dough and any crumbs together.
Place the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper that is about 15×10-inches. Press the dough out slightly using your hands, then top with a second sheet of paper.
Gently roll the dough out enough to reach the edges of the paper. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect – you can cut off any excess to neaten it up a bit.
Remove the top sheet of paper, then spread the jam evenly over the dough, leaving about 1cm around the edges.
Carefully loosen the edge of the dough on the short side of the paper, then roll the dough up tightly like a Swiss roll. Wrap in clingfilm, and freeze for 1 hour or until firm.
Once firm, slice the roll into 1/2-inch thick slices, and place them onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until set and slightly golden brown around the edges.
Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes on the tray before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
